IMPROVING LIVES FOR PEOPLE WITH A LEARNING DISABILITY
Healthwatch Torbay is working in partnership with the Learning Disability Sustainability and Transformation Partnership to undertake a new independent survey.
Together they’re going to be reviewing and refreshing ‘Living Well with a Learning Disability in Devon 2014 – 17’, the Devon-wide Learning Disability Commissioning Strategy.
The aim is to find out what has worked well and, crucially, areas that could be improved. As they want to ensure that the revised strategy is in tune with people’s vision for their future, they want people with lived experience as well as carers and providers to have their say in shaping and improving the ‘Living Well with a Learning Disability Strategy’ over the next three years.
As Healthwatch Torbay have been working in the community for some time to develop their engagement work, many organisations supporting people with learning disabilities and their families have already offered their support to speak with individuals to hear about their experiences and to gather their and comments and ideas.
Now people can feedback to Healthwatch Torbay by completing an online survey, by speaking to them directly at their office in Paignton’s Library and Information Centre (Monday – Friday, 9.30am – 12pm), or by using the Freephone number 08000 520 029 where someone will help them complete the questionnaire over the phone.
All responses will be anonymous, while all the information provided will be used in a report end when all the feedback has been gathered and shared with commissioners.
